This rice, quinoa, apple, and Iberian ham salad meets the requirements for healthy recipes with ham as it provides us with a set of essential nutrients for our body.

On one hand, we choose wild rice in combination with quinoa. These foods not only provide us with macronutrients like carbohydrates and proteins but also contain minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and of course, fiber. As a plant-based food (which should be present in every dish), we choose the apple, a source of potassium and vitamins.

We add our star ingredient: Iberian ham. A great source of proteins and healthy fats, essential nutrients in a healthy and balanced diet. Additionally, it adds other vegetables like green bell pepper or cherry tomatoes and completes the dish. The result: delicious! An irresistible contrast of flavors.

Green Beans with Poached Egg and Iberian Ham

The base of the dish is fine green beans, which provide few calories to the body and are rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and fiber. On the other hand, we have the egg as a complement and prepare it in the form of a poached egg. This cooking method is healthier than the typical fried egg as it doesn't require a single drop of oil since it's poached in boiling water. We continue to enjoy the liquid texture of the yolk, which bursts and fills the dish with flavor that we love.

Finally, we have our star ingredient: acorn-fed Iberian ham. A source of protein and healthy fats that will enrich the dish, maximizing its flavor. Moreover, remember that if you add ham to your recipes, you can reduce their salt content, making them even more heart-healthy!

Artichokes with Ham

The dish is based on a plant-based ingredient, the artichoke. Its high water, fiber, and inulin content make it a positive product for digestion, fat burning, and cholesterol control.

Combining artichokes with other healthy vegetables and foods, such as fruits, vegetables, or proteins, is ideal. In this recipe, we've chosen onion, garlic, and ham, in the form of shavings, as companions. The ham contributes the protein content to the dish and completes it nutritionally.
